Late last month, Travel Weekly revealed its list of 2014 Readers Choice Award winners. More than 9,000 industry voters, including Travel Weekly readers and industry professionals, selected the best airlines, destinations, hotels, cruise lines and theme parks.

Las Vegas topped the list as the Best U.S. City, while Hawaii was selected as the #1 state to visit. 

Why are we sharing this with you? While we know you certainly could use a vacation right about now, this information is actually very relevant to Nonprofit fundraising as well as donor acquisition and retention.
